Description: A Boston Roll is a typical standard roll and is safe for beginners as it has cooked shrimp and now raw fish. It’s a typical example of fusion cuisine of American and Japanese Sushi. Fusion cuisine is when chefs modify traditional Japanese recipes to make them more appealing to American tastes. Bottom line, if you like shrimp and don’t mind the traditional nori wrapper taste you’ll love the Boston Roll.
Boston Roll Recipe:
1 Sheet nori
1 Cup Sushi Rice
6 Small shrimp, with the tails cut off
1 Cup tobiko (flying fish eggs)
Description: The California roll is the standard beginner roll because there is no raw fish. It just has a little cooked crab which most people like, some avocado and cucumber. It’s a safe bet to start out on but rather bland after you’ve explored some other sushi rolls.
